This requires access of the condensing unit which normally can be slid out in order to clean the unit.Remove ouside vent panel which is normally one screw on the bottom,remove the two lower screws and brackets retaining the unit at front/lower area of the condenser-pull out being carefull with line sets and cords...the electrical cord for the condensing unit may need un-plugged from a receptacle inside to allow room to slide out. .Try to collect all dust build up off fans,condenser compressor area with dry vac and by hand.If greasy build up exists on coils use a food grade safe coil cleaner which is a foamy degreaser which will further clean coils. I am using a product called "vipor" from refrigeration technologies which is a food grade cleaner and works very well.

The compressor itself can be cleaned with any mild cleaner/degreaser and a rag (the fins are aluminum and the tubing is copper, so no heavy-duty cleaners). if you mean the condenser (coils), compressed air works best. if the pressure is too high or the hose nozzle too close, the fins will bend, so be careful. if the dust/dirt/obstructions are really coated on the fins, there are cleaners that you can spray on. as long as you know can clean what's behind it and can soak up the puddles, you can spray simple green, let it set for a little, then use the air hose to blow it out. you can use a fin comb to straighten out the bent fins. for the evaporator fins, just use air.

QGS-50 compressor runs fine for a couple hours then trips the breaker it runs about 180-200 deg allready replaced thermostat and cleaned coolers also when it reaches full pressure and unloads it doesnt...


Check the size of the breaker in your electric panel, then check the motor name plate on compressor. Make sure you know what voltage you have to determine switch amp draw that your motor will be pulling. Once you have the amp draw multiply that # by 1.75. That is the smallest breaker that you can use. If you take the same amp draw and multiply by 2.25 that is the largest breaker that you use. Somewhere between those two numbers there is a breaker out there for you, unless your panel is to small.

GDM12 reach-in just cycle clicks when plugged in - not cooling


Clicking like this is usually a problem with the compressor start device. They are prone to failing and the overload protector is cycling to hopefully protect the compressor from burning out. If the start device is a solid state device if you remove it from the compressor it should not rattle. If it does it is bad and will need to be replaced. Installing a new strat device should get it back up and running.

Champion CSF30 compressor high screw temp fault


Check the oil level, if oil level is ok, check the cooler for cleanliness, if cooler is clean, check the thermal valve by measuring the temperatures going in and coming out of valve. The final thing would be the air-end (pump). has lost it clearances.

It just stopt cooling (wgersdorf@yahoo.com)


Hello,

Turn the temperature dial to the lowest temperature setting. Wait 24 hours for the wine cooler to reach the desired temperature. Also, turn the wine cooler off and inspect the fan. If the fan if it's running or not.

Lastly, check the compressor.

These are the areas that could make your wine cooler stop cooling; the temperatue settings (Thermostat), then Fan and the compressor.

Check these three areas and let me have a feed back.

Bye for now.

Can the T-49F be converted from freezer to refrigerator?


Anything is possible so Yes... Although I wouldnt recommend it. The price to have a qualified technician do the job would reach very close to the cost of a new reach-in cooler and it could put a bit of a burden on the compressor. You are better off selling the freezer and purchasing a cooler with the money from the sale. It would involve one of two fairly large scale jobs. 1. The recovery of the refrigerant and installation of a CPR (Crankcase Pressure Regulator) with some wiring changes and adjustments... Or 2. The replacement of the compressor and capillary tubing.

How many quarts of oil are required when changing oil?


Nice compressor! The gx160 engine needs a little more than 1/2 quart. (.6 to be exact) Honda recommends changing oil every 6 mo. or 100 hours with 10-30 for cooler climates and 30 for temp ranges of 60 - 100 deg.. The pump needs about 12oz of compressor oil. I buy the oil at Lowes for less than three dollars. If you work in a very hot environment then use their synthetic oil, (about $7) it will take much more heat and you do not have to change it as often. It is not mentioned anywhere but there is a little air muffler on the pilot valve that discharges air when set pressure is reached that should be cleaned / checked. There is a screen that gets clogged causing heat. Good Luck.

COMPRESOR GETS REALY HOT IS IT THE SWITCH BAD OR THE COMPRESSOR


Reasons for a hot compressor are:
  1. It is just hot and is not a problem.
  2. Lack of ventilation to compressor.
  3. System is short of refrigerant which prevents the return refrigerant from the cooler being cold enough to cool the comp.
  4. If system is short this could make comp run continuosly trying to reach temperature
  5. If the thermostat is stuck on the inside cooler will probably freeze up, so that shouldn't be it.
  6. Compressor could be "letting by", meaning hot gas goes into the cold side of comp, if that is if it will stop working eventuallly.
Hope that helps.

Hamilton Beach 87330 water cooler


Hello! About 2 weeks ago, the same problem began on my Hamilton Beach water dispenser.
Last week, I called the HB service support, and they told me to do the following reset procedure:

1. Dispense 3 cups from the HOT water side, and also, 3 cups from the COLD water side.
2. Turn BOTH back switches OFF (the ones on the back of the water dispenser).
3. Unplug the dispenser, and LEAVE it unplugged for 24 hours.
4. After 24 hours, turn the back switches ON and plug it in.
5. Leave it on for 4 hours WITHOUT dispensing any water.

...it's been about 12 hours since I've dispensed water again for the first time, and so far, SO GOOD! I'll update if the problems reappear.
